Pickup available at Appleton Store

Usually ready in 2-4 days

Anthoney Hart returns with his second Basic Rhythm album for Planet Mu, 'Electronic Labyrinth'. The title itself conveys the overarching theme of the album, evoking the journey that Hart has undertaken. The underlying themes are of a more personal nature, the cover photo of St Fabian Tower where Hart first joined Rude FM in the late 90s, as well as explicit references to books such as Wilson Harris’ Palace of the Peacocks. What you end up with is an album that not only draws upon a wide range of influences from both the musical and literary worlds, intertwining them within a deeply personal context that imbues the music with a depth of meaning, but that is also somehow more coherent despite such a wide range of references and hidden meanings. It is at once both an album of subtexts open to interpretation, and a cohesive whole that fits together perfectly.
